Footnotes

  • Redolent of a glorious summer’s day, this evocative view of Cowes during Regatta Week can be dated to that golden era of British yachting which flourished between the two World Wars under the enthusiastic patronage of King George V. Following in the footsteps of his father (as Prince of Wales) in the 1890s, George V’s regular attendance at Cowes Week from 1920 until 1935 ensured that the event maintained its prestige as one of the highlights of the social season. Even more important than the King’s mere presence however, was his active participation in the racing aboard his own legendary cutter “Britannia”, whose frequent successes not only delighted the crowds of spectators but also ensured good sport for all who sailed against her.
    The female figure with the gentleman on her right, standing in the foreground at the water's edge are probably intended to be Queen Mary and King George V.
